Yes, I won!

Dad has a bath seat supplied by social services to enable him to bathe. Only trouble is, it doesn't recline so he has to remain upright. Yes it is great they have supplied him with one but when you are end stage, sometimes its the littlest things that make the biggest difference.

So I have been trailing ebay and second hand sites for weeks now and finally one came up in the vicinity and I bid and bid and bid and won............yippee!

I was so excited I rang dad to tell him and he was pleased as punch. Hopefully I can go and collect it tomorrow and soon dad can have a nice chilled out laid back bath. Heaven x

That's great! :-)

I know for my wife the smallest things give her the most pleasure. We got hold of a second hand riser/recliner chair so she didn't have to put up with the nasty hospital-type chair .............. she loves it! :-) I hope your Dad gets pleasure out of his new bath chair.

I'm so pleased for you, but also a bit green with envy, I broke my ankle in October last year and now have a plate with 7 screws. and last May I damaged the ligaments in the same foot, hence haven't had a bath in over a year, have to climb into the bath to have showers,I'd love to have a nice long soak but as I live on my own I'd never get manage to get out of the bath. Have Golf Elbow and Raynauds which doesn't help. Perhaps I should look on ebay too. xx
